We were taken here on our day tour of the area. It is a beautiful little lake in a beautiful little town in a beautiful area. I would love to spend a month or two out here hiking, fishing, boating, rowing, and just exploring. The largest fresh water lake in Catalonia with very interesting origins and properties.

Marvelous place, to walk around and to sail inside the lake. Lots of nature to discover. Lots of activities to do with family and without. Porqueres Church which is next to the lake it's also a nice place to visit. Not always opened but nice to see from outside. To walk around the lake it's more or less one hour. The path is clean and have of the lake or more there is a cycling path which is also available for wheel chairs...

We never expected such an amazing place to be found in this area of spain. We were going round with our car and my wife noted on the internet about this place and so we decided to give it a go. When we arrived we were amazed by the size of the lake and the lifestyle round it. Simply beautiful and full of life. The restaurants around the lake are also very cheap and they serve excellent food. You can take the boat round the lake. Forgot how much it costs but it was worth it. If you're in the area it is highly recommended!

Delightful spot for a picnic, coffee or lunch on the shores of Banyoles lake. The water is crystal clear and good for swimming & paddling. The lake also serves as the training ground for Olympic rowers.

What a beautiful spot to visit. I came while the sun was setting and let's just say- the pictures were to die for!
